Cabinetry Care

Congratulations! We know you have a choice in selecting kitchen cabinetry and appreciate your interest in our brand. With proper care, your Advanta Cabinets products will deliver years of beauty, enjoyment, and convenience.

This Advanta Cabinets Care Guide will assist you in choosing the correct products to protect your cabinets from normal wear and to repair any imperfections if they should occur.

Advanta Cabinets products are constructed of quality materials and finished with superior coatings. They have undergone rigorous testing prior to shipping. This is your assurance that Advanta Cabinets products will maintain their attractive finish and structural soundness throughout the years of normal everyday use.

As with any product constructed of wood, taking the time to care for your new cabinets can go a long way in keeping them looking their best. Here are a few simple suggestions to make your cabinet care easier.

  • Clean cabinets as needed with a mild detergent or with soap and water (Murphy’s Oil Soap) and dry well using a lint-free cloth for both washing and drying.
  • Wipe up spills, splatters and water spots as they occur, keeping cabinets and countertop surfaces dry.
  • Give special attention to areas near the sink and dishwasher that come in contact with moisture.
  • Use cleaners and polishes designed for wood cabinets and clean all surfaces as needed.

Stopping Problems Before They Occur

Do not use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or powdered cleaners. These materials may penetrate the cabinet finish allowing moisture to enter and cause deterioration. 

  • Do not use aerosol sprays containing silicones or paste waxes. 
  • Do not leave a wet cloth on or near cabinets for extended periods of time. 
  • Do not allow oven cleaners or other caustic cleaners to touch the cabinets. 
  • Do not spray or clean cabinets with glass cleaners. 

Remedies for Common Kitchen Accidents

Most problems can be prevented by wiping up any spills as soon as they occur. Follow these first aid suggestions for common household accidents. When removing a spot begin at the outer edge and work toward the middle to prevent the spot from spreading. 

Food Spots/Water Spots 

Clean cabinets as needed with a mild detergent or with soap and water (use sparingly) and dry well using a lint free cloth for both washing and drying.

Greasy Spots 

Rub grease, lipstick, crayon, or oil with a damp cloth. Use cleaners and polishes designed for wood cabinets and clean all surfaces as needed.

Chewing Gum/Candle Wax 

Apply a plastic bag filled with ice on top of the deposit until it is brittle enough to crumble off.

Minor Scratches, Nicks, and Dents

Advanta Cabinets offers a Cabinetry Care Kit to help you keep your Advanta Cabinets products looking like new. Most scratches, nicks, and dents can be repaired using this kit. The Cabinetry Care Kit includes (1) a touch-up marker to
re-stain small scratches and (2) a putty stick to fill nail holes, minor nicks, and dents. 

Customers who need to re-stain larger areas of a cabinet may also order a quart of touch-up stain.

Both of these items can be ordered through the Advanta Cabinets customer service department.
